What is a person to do?? I had to put my mother in a nursing home.
I had put my mother into a very nice nursing home. She is 84yrs old but got around faily good. She has dementia but early stage. She didn't want to live alone any longer and for one year keep saying she wanted to go into a nursing home. I have three brothers and a sister but for the last year it has been on me for her care and getting her into the nursing. And it has been pure hell for the last year.
When she got into the nursing home she seemed to be happy at first then she had to share her room and that is when the trouble started. She stopped eating, wouldn't get out of her bed and her health was going down. So I was going to try and let her stay with me but it is not working out. My mother has always been a very domineering woman. My brother told me to leave her in the nursing home but I didn't listen. Now she is being down right mean and trying to take over. Sometimes she acts like she hates me.
My room mate wants her out. She is spending the night with friends but I'm going to tell her tomorrow that she will need to go back to a nursing home. I hate to do this but I'm tired to my bones. My brothers and sister won't help with any of this so I'm on my on.
